This minicourse has been cancelled because the speaker will be unable to visit.


In the minicourse we will explain the paradigm of inflationary cosmology and explore its predictions for the cosmological perturbations which are thought to be the seeds of the large-scale structure of the universe.

This minicourse will be preceded by the Workshop on Classical Gravity and Applications from August 29-31, 2022.

There is no registration fee.
